It was the snub that threatened to overshadow the wedding of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
According to new reports, Jay Z and Beyonce skipped the fairytale wedding because Beyonce did not want to be overshadowed by the bride.
The report goes on to say, they ‘shunned Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s wedding because it was too low-rent for the Jay Z/Beyoncé brand.’
A source told the paper: ‘They are guarding like hell their status.
‘Beyoncé wasn’t going to allow a Kardashian to socially climb her. And Jay didn’t want Kanye with Kim – he thinks it’s bad for business.
‘I think Jay lost a little respect for Kanye there.’
Instead of travelling to Paris, France and then on to Florence, Italy with the wedding party in May, Mr and Mrs Carter opted for a quiet weekend in the Hamptons with their daughter Blue Ivy.
After the amazing wedding ceremony, the ‘Drunk in Love’ star tweeted: ‘Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love. God bless your beautiful family.’
Before the wedding, radar online reported that Beyonce dreaded the thought of the lavish affair.
‘Jay and Beyoncé’s wedding was shrouded in secrecy and extreme lengths were made to make sure their wedding was an intimate affair for friends and family, only,’ an insider told Radar in March.
‘This will be the complete opposite. She thinks it’s just tacky.’
